Through their vast combined experience working with college students, the authors of this guide have recognized that many students lack the important study skills and strategies they need to get through their college endeavors successfully. This book and its accompanying computer assessment disk were developed to meet this need AND to help students develop the skills they need to use the modern electronic library, as well as the Internet and the WWW. Now teachers and college faculty can ensure that their students acquire or improve the study skills and strategies they need to be successful in college - with this resource of over 100 ready-to-use, reproducible activities. By putting them to use in the classroom instruction or assigning them to students for independent learning, the results are all but guaranteed. Using this resource, students learn how to use strategies for remembering important information; obtain, organize, and record important information from textbooks; take systematic notes from class presentations; use the Library and the Internet; write a research paper; prepare for and take a variety of tests, and organize their study time and space. Directors of learning and writing centers; other faculty and administrators involved in courses and programs to teach student skills; instructors of freshman experience and other student success courses; faculty and administrators responsible for student retention.
